Two things are simultaneously true:

1. Watching crypto completely shit the bed is very funny, as is watching HODLer bros double down and lose more to the tune of marginal whining about why won't the government fix this.
2. Those crypto bros are going to be radicalized by the convincing themselves that they didn't lose a bunch speculating in the century's most obviously stupid fucking scam, but in fact they earned something of actual value that was then taken away from them. The retarded monkey boat discord channel or whatever is not a healthy place to cultivate ties with reality.

Disgraceful. SEC bullying of inside traders violates the Non-Aggression Principle.

Cuz how can you effectively fleece the cryptobros if your employees aren't even allowed to say the word "jiggaboo" out loud?

That NewYork Times article was good!

I’m having flash backs to a burningman camp I was with that had some dudes like these, and that one night the idea of a future ‘art project’ of fundraising a million dollars to then burn it in a big fire tornado to show people that money is just like paper man, was tossed about way too long as some sort of more meta than meta genius idea. At least a few also thought themselves master trolls.

NYT Kraken In April, a Kraken employee posted a video internally on a different Slack group that set off the latest fracas. The video featured two women who said they preferred $100 in cash over a Bitcoin, which at the time cost more than $40,000. “But this is how female brain works,” the employee commented.

Mr. Powell chimed in. He said the debate over women’s mental abilities was unsettled. “Most American ladies have been brainwashed in modern times,” he added on Slack, in an exchange viewed by The Times.

:lol: Hey ladies, the man who’s entire business is to convince other men they are absolutely not the greater fools out there and their poorly secured digital beanie baby coin will be sellable for a profit, would like to explain to you how women just aren’t as smart and logical as men, they just don’t understand the world like men.

NYT Kraken At Kraken, Mr. Powell is part of a Slack group called trolling-999plus, according to messages viewed by The Times. The group is labeled “… and you thought 4chan was full of trolls,”

Just think, if people linked to us, we could of had this genius in our Cloaca!

NYT KrakenThis month, Mr. Powell unveiled a 31-page culture document outlining Kraken’s “libertarian philosophical values” and commitment to “diversity of thought,” and told employees in a meeting that he did not believe they should choose their own pronouns. The document and a recording of the meeting were obtained by The Times.
I know I’ve hacked up the article a bit but just :lol:
Super libertarian company says fuck your opinion, your gender is whatever we decide!

Not only a strange and silly idea, but one that has already been done.

K Foundation Burn a Million Quid - Wikipedia

Quote:
K Foundation Burn a Million Quid was a performance art action on 23 August 1994 in which the K Foundation (an art duo consisting of Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty) burned cash in the amount of one million pounds sterling (equivalent to about £2.1 million in 2021) in a disused boathouse on the Ardfin Estate on the Scottish island of Jura. The money represented the bulk of the K Foundation's funds, earned by Drummond and Cauty as The KLF, one of the United Kingdom's most successful pop groups of the early 1990s.

I don’t understand the financial details but it sounds like ‘only the rich will be getting their money back’ from Celsius crypto wallet (bank) and lender who suspended withdrawals and has now filed for Chapter 11.
